    Hey!



    I use these glasses and they work perfectly. Sure, I will help you, PM me your address and I will figure out how much is the cost to ship it to you.

    Everything I learned about "biohacking" has been baby steps to "circadian biology", that's where the real biohacking comes in. You can buy a bunch of cool shit to "hack" but if you don't have context, you're not winning. Paleo is just a brand now and too many have opinions, it's on you to read and reread the material to not only find truth but to connect the dots. Much love to everyone who has helped me on my journey for restoring my health, please keep in touch. Feel free to message me with health questions Consultwithrod@live.com 

  • I've often wondered whether some performance sport sunglasses with orange lenses (Oakley has some) are equivalent - with the added benefit of looking ever so slightly more "conventional."  Anyone done the research on this?

    I bought those glasses and started using them last night as soon as the sun went down.  First of all I think it's hilarious wearing orange sunglasses around my house at night.  It's kinda like being in another world when all the lights you look at are glowing orange like fire which makes sense because before artificial lighting fire was our only light source besides moonlight.  When I got in bed and turned the lights off and put on my sleep mask it definitely had a strong effect on me.  I didn't get to sleep any faster than usual but I'm still fine tuning my diet and dealing with possible digestive issues.  


  • Update:  I've been using these for a week now.  I put them on an hour before bed and I've been falling asleep right away.

    Lots of sunglass makers will make a no blue lens if you look into it.

    Mine just arrived today! I got the ones mentioned above. 
    Uvex S1933X Skyper Safety Eyewear, Black Frame, SCT-Orange UV Extreme Anti-Fog Lens

    Will put them on an hour before I wanna sleep and see what happens :) I'm excited. 


    Do you sleep with them on?


  • I work night shift 11p to 7a. about 11am I will put mine on while I am still moving around the house and getting ready for bed. I have noticed after about 30 min I start to yawn and can feel my self settling down. I also bought a amber light bulb on amazon that I put in my nightstand lamp so that I can read in bed. I don't sleep in the amber glasses I found an eye mask that blocks out all light while I sleep. It dose move around and I might not be waring it when I wake up. I have tried to black out my room as much as possible.


  • I tried them last night, although perhaps unnecessarily. I went to a bar and got home at 3:30am and was already ready to fall asleep. I'll try them again on day that is more normal.


  • The amber lenses I got on amazon I like these becuase the wrap around my eyes and fit very close to the face. I do not notice any leaking blue light coming around the sides of the lens. Just my two sense. I continue to think it is helping me to settle down before going to bed.

    So do you just need any orange UV lenses to block out the blue light? Or is there something particular that they need to do or have?

  • A long time ago I saw an infomercial selling blue blocker glasses that could lead you to think they are something special. From what I understand of the physics is orange glasses should still block blue light. the biology is that an area of the retina is stimulated by blue light in the range of around 460 to 480 nm, when stimulated the pineal gland stop the production of melatonin. wearing the glasses starts the "dim light phase" of the circadian rhythm.


     


    If you have easy access to cheap orange glasses I would say give it a shot. if you are starting from scratch I would say spend a few extra $'s.

    These ones are $16.99 on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Solar-Shield-Fits-Over-Sunglasses-LENSES-29008AMBER/dp/B000LWJCJW/ref=pd_cp_hi_2 I don't know what that translates to your side of the pond but the wrap around aspect is what I like. another sportier option are these http://www.amazon.com/Uvex-S1933X-Eyewear-SCT-Orange-Anti-Fog/dp/B000USRG90/  but if there is light leaking in on the side I don't know if it defets the purpose. Dave wears a pair in all the you tube videos that I have seen that look more like aviator glasses. Mine look like senior citizen glasses, but I only wear them at home before bed so fashion is low priority at that point.

  • A couple of months back I got a a pair of the orange lensed glasses (Uvex-S1933X).  I slip them on in the evening and 45 minutes latter, I just naturally roll off to sleep.  One of the best $10 sleep hacks I can think of.


     


    They do have one down side.  My wife and daughter make merciless fun on me when ever they seem me wear them.  I've got to admit, they do look gooney.


     


    Well, I just couldn't take it anymore and went for a sleeker version: http://www.berettausa.com/products/shooting-glasses/soc310001/


     


    I also got a pair of their purple ones, which might just do the opposite.  I use them during the day, to raise my attention.


     


    Oh, They still make fun of them.


  • I have been using these glasses for few weeks now. http://www.amazon.com/Uvex-S1933X-Eyewear-SCT-Orange-Anti-Fog/dp/B000USRG90


    I can notice the difference before I go to bed. I`m much more relaxed and I get sleep much faster when I go to bed.  Great investment.


    I still wake too early but thats different story.

    epic fail. Lenses aren't actual orange, they're mirror orange. when you put them on, they're dark blue when you look through them!


     


    So ordered these:

    Oh no - that second link... the description says "Yellow Lens"!


     


    Third time's the charm?

  • katolotuskatolotus ✭✭✭

    hoping that's someone who thinks yellow and orange are the same. but you're probably right :-(

  • katolotuskatolotus ✭✭✭

    yeah, yellow! :-(


     


    Tried them anyhow last night and fell asleep really quickly. I get how the right type would work.


     


    I take it yellow doesn't strip out the blue light like orange.

    trying out the yellow glasses anyhow. Not sure if it's a placebo, but having the change in lighting for an hour or so before bed seem to calm and relax me. Falling asleep pretty quick. Not that I had an issue anyway, but I can see the benefits.


     


    What's the orange lenses do that the yellow won't?

  • Dave probably goes into it on a podcast somewhere... but, since the color orange includes yellow, I bet it is probably actually doing something to wear the yellow lenses - as opposed to your results being a placebo effect.


     


    If it were me, though, that would just make me want to see how much better the orange would be, and I'd probably be online looking for my 3rd pair!

    That ones that appear in my thumbnail are blue blockers off amazon for like 7 bucks or something.  No reason to not get that pair.

    I just heard Dave on the OptimOZ.com.au podcast mention that he is developing some bulletproof blue blocker glasses himself to sell.


    Excite!
  • katolotuskatolotus ✭✭✭

    Ok, trying these this time.
